Realistic, smart, and very well done. An excellent film about a man's whose wife carries out a suicide bomb.

The copy of this DVD is badly damaged. There is a crack in it that keeps it from playing. It should be taken out of circulation.

“The Attack” is a story about an Arabic suicide bomber in Tel Aviv. It is one of the best films I have seen this year.
